remit

Here is my best explanation:

'send' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'right back a while after' is the wordplay.
'right' becomes 'r' (common abbreviation).
'back' says the letters should be written in reverse.
'a while' becomes 'time' (I've seen this before).
'after' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'time' in reverse letter order is 'emit'.
'r'+'emit'='REMIT'
